2018 Secret Knowledge Conference - Saturday, November 17th at 10:30am

Talent Alone Isn't Enough. Join us for a day of community connection, utterly useful training & creative empowerment. This year we're making the conference FREE to those who register.

It's been two years since the last Secret Knowledge Conference, and the world has changed.

Being a creative person hasn't gotten any easier. This Secret Knowledge Conference is focused on bringing the creative community together to find the support and wisdom we need on the road ahead. We're bringing back instructors and classic workshops from past conferences. We'll be joined by a local creative leader, City Commissioner Chloe Eudaly, an ally for the arts in City Hall.

This year the conference is sponsored by Regional Arts & Culture Council and by Oregon Arts Commission. Grants from these agencies made it possible to offer this conference for free for the first time ever. In previous years this conference has cost $99 - $249 per person. We're looking forward to seeing you there. Space is limited. Register.

What the Secret Knowledge Conference is:

It’s a full day of utterly useful professional training and community connection for artists, musicians, and other creative-types.

Let’s face it, turning your creative talent into a working livelihood is challenging. Talent alone isn’t enough. The Secret Knowledge Conference is about sharing real creative business wisdom you can actually use.

You’ll learn from people who understand the challenges independent artists & musicians face.

You’ll go home knowing exactly what you need to grow your creative career.
